Every year thousands of homeowners face disaster due to unregulated practices, misleading advice, hidden third parties and cowboy contractors. Only chartered architects offer unrivalled training and experience in the design and construction of buildings. When you use a chartered architect you’re employing someone who has undertaken seven years of professional training, the longest in the building industry.
Yes, we do. So before you embark on your property development project, it’s essential to first clarify your position and establish whether your project is feasible, viable and commercially sound. As experienced London architects, we understand how stressful this process can be and can help you navigate the complex process of seeking planning permission and designing and developing your property. With your convenience in mind, we offer three ways to launch your consultation process:
We work across the entire residential architecture spectrum with construction budgets of 100k – 10m. With a proven track record delivering home extensions, flat conversions, HMOs, new build houses and flats, we also have extensive experience in luxury interior design projects in central London and sustainable urban design projects for green belt land developments in the UK.
As a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) chartered practice, the architectural and town planning services we offer follow a set of guidance stages outlined here. Whether you’d like the full architecture service from conception to completion – or just want planning permission for your project, you can trust us to deliver measurable results.
You should expect to invest at least £3,000 in a project. Other than feasibility studies (which range from £1,000 – £10,000+ depending on the scope), there’s virtually no project we would take on that would come in below this rate.
Our services for preparing, managing and submitting planning applications start from £3,000 and unless otherwise agreed. When you hire Urbanist Architecture, you can count on a project-specific flat rate. No hidden fees. Instead, we quote you based on your actual needs, with a clear proposal that shows you where your investment is going.
This means that we’ll quote you based on your actual needs with a clear proposal that shows you where your investment is going. You’re paying us to deliver an outcome – NOT for the time we spend to achieve that outcome. That’s why we quote an itemised, project-specific rate that shows you exactly what we’re going to deliver with absolutely no guesswork.
Purely as an indication, charges for our full service, from conception to completion, can be calculated as a percentage of the build cost, and range between 10% and 15% depending on the scale and scope of your project. You can choose the services you require, whether you want our comprehensive full service from conception to completion, or just want our help with your planning application.
Urbanist Architecture is a London-based RIBA chartered architecture and planning practice with offices in Greenwich and Belgravia. We are on a mission to unlock the hidden potential of your site and deliver you a successful transformational change.
